It is definitely possible to breed one male with multiple females. One thing you want to make sure of before going into the breeding season is that your male boa is large/well fed.  Males will usualy not eat/eat only a little during the breeding season and its not uncommon for a male boa to shed a few pounds while breeding.

There are a few ways to go about breeding one male with multiple females:

First if you have a large enough enclosure/tank you can put both the females in with the male, but be sure to never put two males in the same cage with one female as the males will fight.  The females will not fight each other and the male will breed both of them.

If your enclosure is not large enough for all three boas then you can rotate the male between the two females enclosures. There is no magic number as far as days or weeks to leave the male in with the females, just be sure to watch for the ovulation of the female and make sure you pull the male out of the females cage after they have stopped breeding. You don’t want the male snake in the enclosure with the babies when they are born as the male will eat the young ones.

Hope that answered your question. Feel free to comment if you have any other questions.

Good luck on breeding this year
